Micro Mention "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood"

Howard Pyle

Everyone knows Robin Hood—steals from the rich gives to the poor. But I've never read Howard Pyle's "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood" before now. It's foundational to many modern incarnations of the character. I also never realized how many times Robin gets the stuffing beat out of him.

Unlike many more modern approaches to telling Robin Hood's story, this book is firmly meant for children. There is some violence here and there, and a couple characters don't survive, but most of the short stories that make up this book ends with everyone surviving and having a bit of a laugh. It is aptly called The MERRY adventures of Robin Hood, after all.
